  • Sinful Sympathy Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 1, 2021

    Chapter 4 shows us three approaches that Eliphaz took to Job, which he apparently thought would be helpful, but which are contrary to the true spirit of sympathy, and thus, must be classified as sinful sympathy, for they do more harm than good.

    Tragedy so often leads to bitterness against God. Mark Twain had a daughter who died at the age of 21 because of diphtheria. His wife also died young. He became so angry and bitter that he lashed out at God with the very gift that made him famous, his pen. He wrote and imaginative tale about more

  • Sanctified Sympathy Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 1, 2021

    It is easier for those who have suffered deeply to be more sympathetic. Those who are more likely to be like Job's friends are those who have not suffered, and do not bother to develop the power of sympathy.

    Sometimes you have to hurt others to help them. Iona Henry's case is a prime example. She had been in the hospital for 83 days on Demerol. She became dependent upon this drug for sleep, and escape, for she could not stand to think of her future without her husband and two children, all of more

  • Sympathy Towards Paul Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Oct 30, 2018

    Paul has to tell them that he speaks out of the fullness of his heart, that if his mouth has been opened with an unusual frankness it is because his heart has felt more than common sympathy for them.

    July 16, 2014 Tom Lowe The Second Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians Lesson II.C.1.a: Sympathy Towards Paul. (6:11-13) 2nd Corinthians 6:11-13 (NKJV) 11 O Corinthians! We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open. 12 You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted more

  • Friends - Sympathy To Empathy Series

    Contributed by Paul Clemente on Dec 7, 2020

    How do we handle friends who are having troubles?

    We continue our study of Job, a man described as blameless, upright, feared God and shunned evil. We noted God allowed satan to test Job. But even after losing just about everything, including all his children, and was given a disease with painful sores from head to toe, Job humbled himself before more

  • The Throne Of Grace

    Contributed by Troy Borst on Jan 8, 2020

    In Hebrews 4:14-16, the “throne of grace” is described in two main ways… authority and power and then sympathy and understanding.

    THE THRONE OF GRACE HEBREWS 4:14-16 #throneofgrace READ Hebrews 4:14-16 (READ THE PASSAGE ALOUD TOGETHER) Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is more

  • Providing Comfort During Trials

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on May 13, 2021
    based on 2 ratings

    How do we respond to those who are enduring hardships? Do we dish out criticism and judgment, or do we show genuine compassion? The experience from our own trials can help us better minister to those in trouble and anguish.

    Samuel Chadwick said, “Compassion costs. It is easy enough to argue, criticize and condemn; but redemption is costly, and comfort draws from the deep. Brains can argue, but it takes heart to comfort.”(1) How do we respond to those who are enduring hardship? Do we dish out criticism and more

  • I Care

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Mar 21, 2021

    If you have a Facebook account you may be familiar with the care emoji. We use it when someone posts something sad or painful. But being a caring person goes beyond clicking the care emoji on a Facebook post. Let's see what will help us to be more caring.

    I CARE If you have a Facebook account you may be familiar with the care emoji. When I first saw this I thought it was lame; 'I don't like it or love it; I just care'. But I actually found myself using it for the first time recently when someone posted something sad. I realized more

  • Real Compassion Series

    Contributed by C. Philip Green on Oct 22, 2009
    based on 15 ratings

    Jesus’ feeding of the 4,000 shows us that real compassion sees the need, feels the need and meets the need.

    In nearly 24 years of pastoral ministry, I have been asked some tough questions about the Christian faith. One of the toughest questions regards the problem of evil and why a good and all-powerful God allows people to suffer in this world. Peter Kreeft, a Christian apologist and philosopher, has more

  • The Principle Of The Golden Rule Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Mar 16, 2022
    based on 1 rating

    Most are familiar with the Golden Rule. Bible skeptics argue there is nothing special about Jesus' teaching on this principle. His teaching, however, is unique and much different than the worldly views.

    The Principle of the Golden Rule Matthew 7:12 We come to a statement our Lord made while preaching the Sermon on the Mount that we are all familiar. No doubt each of us has heard this principle as long as we can remember. The Bible skeptic would argue there is nothing special about our Lord’s more

    Contributed by Charles Cunningham on Apr 6, 2020

    Troubles in the lives of saints and sinners alike give us pause not only to seek comfort for ourselves but also to be of comfort to others by trusting in the Lord to provide and to guide.
